    Gene Toones - What more do you want
  1. Me too Dave, in a picture sleeve Fantastic record. I think she got a bit into oversinging later on and I think this is much more raw. Kev
  2. A bit off thread but Heather Small at her Best and she looks so young Kev
  3. Out last week with the wife, the eldest daughter and the dogs along Heswall Fields. The Dee estuary looking more like mud flats these days
  4. I think we get that, I mean nobody dresses like that do they?
  5. Couldn't agree more. Who cares what anyone wears. If this could attract a whole new generation to the music we have loved for over 40 yrs then that would be fantastic. It would also mean that our valued collections would still attract collectors. Kev
  6. Looking for a good clean copy. Please pm with price Thanks Kev
  7. Haven't been out with the camera for a bit, but had a good day at West Kirby beach yesterday when my daughter and her friend hit the sands . If I could ride a horse this is how I would like to do it!
  8. He's critically ill now, not dead, according to the BBC too!
  9. What a sad day http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-39500773
  10. I have this version on cd (1991) that is the two versions spliced together. It starts off with the instrumental and then the vocals join in much later.
  11. Always loved his version of this and I do like watching old Soul Train videos Kev
  12. My 16 yr old daughter has just bought two tickets pre-sale for Catfish and the Bottlemen from ViaGoGo using my paypal account. She hasn't done this before so was easily caught by clicking on Viagogo, as it was a paid advert at the top of the Google search. She should have clicked on Liverpool Echo Arena's own web site. However, they don't go on sale officially until Friday with Echo Arena. They are advertised on Echo Arena as being £25/£28 each, but my daughter paid £315 for two tickets!!! She paid using my paypal account, which is backed up by my credit card. Viagogo says they will not refund the money on their website and says that you have to re-sell them through their website, but I think that they don't hold them and you have to pick them up at the box office. I can of course sell them on nearer the time in June. They are in the standing area right at the front, which is limited to about 400 people, so they are in a good spec and I presume the concert will sell out. but I just wondered if anyone had any ideas on how to get a refund. Thanks Kev
  13. Ah English Nature. Now that's an organisation I have done battle with. Living opposite a SSSI. Designated as lowland heathland, it is being overrun by self seeded silver birch and ultimately they will give way to oak. The trees are are stunting the growth of the heathers and selfishly, from my perspective, eroding the view of the estuary and whilst EN accept this and are cutting trees down elswhere on the site, they won't cut them down in front of us. Despite us offering to pay for the work. I have negotiated with 4 different officers over 4 years and just at the point when I thought I was getting somewhere, they left or were re-posted to a different part of the country. I presume your great shame and disgrace was employing a Botanist, not the fact that you worked for EN
  14. I have to say, I am very impressed Dave. Having been in this house for 22 years I've seen walkers picking the fruit and eating it and yet when questioned they haven't been sure what it was they were eating. My wife is a keen gardener, but her knowledge tends to be centred around flowers. I must have asked 20 people over the years and no one knew. Well done that man and Thanks. Kev
  15. Thanks Dave, I already have one so I'm not looking to get another. My neighbour has a tree that is the same but it bears no fruit. Maybe PM me if you want to keep it a secret :-) Kev
